Lukas Rossi and his band, Stars Down is comprised of an internationally acclaimed singer (Rossi) who sounds like a bastard music child of Freddie Mercury and Jeff Buckley (and is as compelling on stage as David Bowie and Iggy Pop), and a full throttle band that will make your ass move (all while stealing your girlfriends). The band's influences collectively range everywhere from Jeff Buckley to The Cure to Queen, however Lukas Rossi’s original music is very fresh, very new, and very much his own. Layered with melodic harmonies, and a stellar (no pun intended) ability to grab the crowd by the balls, the Lukas Rossi and Stars Down sound is emotive and tortured, yet inspiring and hopeful, and in the unforgettable soaring vocals of Lukas Rossi, the listener ultimately finds redemption.

Born in Johannesburg, South Africa, Dilana began her singing career at a very young age, finding her way on stage in front of her first audience at the age of 7. From then on, she was music obsessed, leaving school at 16 to sing in a traveling duo and soon, perform in various cover and original bands for a number of years. Leaving, as she called it, years of "madness and violence in the city," she moved from her homeland and onto the Netherlands in order to further herself and start her own band. A wise decision--playing covers and originals, Dilana's band became one of the country's highest paid and most booked bands. She even opened up for the internationally acclaimed (Dutch) rock band, Golden Earring. Dilana who is best known for her participation on the hit CBS reality-show "Rock Star: Supernova" now lives in the United States where she is enjoying success with surely more hits to follow.
